Misunderstanding Quotes Between Lovers
Difference of opinions
Sometimes, women just need an ear to listen and a mind to hear and forget. But, sometimes men take this as a sign to actually listen, judge the situation and find a solution to the situation. This may aggravate the woman and it may lead to a small fight due to these difference of opinions and lead to quite a lot of misunderstanding and harsh allegations.
Dealing with the situation: When any one of you want to be the first person to vent out the anger, let the person know that they do not want a solution to it, but just want someone to hear it out.
“A thing that is accepted to be true, without any proof of reality” – this is the pure definition of this word. Small word, but a big meaning hidden. In a relationship, most of the misunderstanding and fights happen because of this nasty little thing. Your partner may assume that you want a light dinner tonight, but actually, you are imagining a sumptuous meal.
Dealing with the situation: Clear communication is the only solution to deal with this common form of misunderstanding in a relationship. If anytime, you think you are not clear about anything, ask, instead of assuming.
Seeing just one side of the feeling
Sometimes partners tend to forget to see the other side of the story. This leads to quite a misunderstanding because if your feelings are emotions are important and genuine, so it the other side!
Dealing with the situation: Talk, and understand each other’s point of view before reaching conclusions. This will help you to throw the misunderstanding out of the window.
Judging the tone of the partner over electronic devices
Just an ‘ok’ or a ‘k’ in a response? Is he angry still? Did I do something to piss her off? NOO! It could also be because your spouse is in an important meeting, but wanted to acknowledge your text? Judging your partner’s mood over these smartphones is one common mistake today’s generation is making.
Dealing with the situation: If such things happen, call up immediately and clarify the doubt instead of carrying forward the baggage and venting it out for no reason.
Believing a third person’s insights
Nobody knows your relationship and partner better than you, not even your partner’s BFF. They may know one side of the man/woman, but not in the intimate way as you do. Sometimes, you may tend to believe an insight of a third person, which often is a reason for a lot of misunderstandings.
Dealing with the situation: listen to everyone, but before judging your partner on that basis, ask and confirm the fact with them. The clarification from your partner will help you to get a better insight.
Getting too lost in details that are not important
When you are looking for a vacation, you need not get into details of what clothes to carry! Because, those details are not necessary at the moment, as the bigger picture here is to finalize on dates and venue of the vacation! Give your partner a surprise and get inspired by these quotes.
Dealing with the situation: Be it an argument or a silly matter as stated above of a vacation, always clearly tell your partner patiently to focus on the bigger picture. Shouting or assuming is not the right way to deal.
The Emotional side v/s practical side shall always be kept on priority. Be emphatic where the situation demands you to be, while at the other times, be as practical as possible. This will help you balance out your relationship.
